Margaret Bourke-White is an internationally renowned photojournalist who, from the 1920s through the 1950s, tirelessly recorded the objects, people, and events that shaped history. Famous first as an industrial photographer, then as one of the four original staff members of Life magazine (her photograph graced its first cover), her vision and camera took her where others had never dared to venture.

This new volume of her legendary work is more complete than any volume published to date. Drawing from her personal archives at Syracuse University and including the entire range of her photographic endeavors, it includes her earliest industrial work, striking portraits, and visual essays depicting horrendous social conditions. Alongside portraits of Churchill, Stalin, and Gandhi are photographs of cavernous steel mills, South African coal mines, Soviet Russia, Buchenwald, and the impoverished streets of India. Informative commentaries on the breadth of Bourke-White's work complete an unprecedented retrospective on this extraordinary photographer.
